A Polk County deputy sheriff was arrested after making $1,000 for hours he really wasn't working at the department, court records show.
Rob Duke's insight:
This is also a managerial failure: It's important to have controls on Time and Attendance (T&A) just like we have accounting controls on the finances. It takes two to tango and it takes two to fill out a time card: one to record what time they worked and a supervisor who takes them to task for any discrepancies.

Shame on the employee, but also shame on this department if they didn't practice admin control on the T&A.

Rob Duke's insight:
Give me a break, he's been a cop for years in neighboring states, which are so close and small, they'd be counties on the Western side of the country. So, he hasn't been through your academy? Is your academy so much more professional than the one 100 miles away across state lines? Do you really want to perpetuate the image of cops always having to whip out their wedding tackle to see who has the biggest johnson?
On December 14, 1955, Darrel Parker came home for lunch from his job as a forester in Lincoln, Nebraska. A recent graduate of Iowa State, he had moved to Lincoln with his wife, Nancy, who worked as a dietician for a flour-and-noodle company and had a cooking show on the local television station.
